Teak is one of the most robust woods in the world. Also its extremely long service life of up to 100 years. The high oil and resin content in teak ensures that the fibers remain supple and break-resistant. Such a self-care miracle material is ideal for garden furniture. Teak is also ideal for frame constructions, windows and doors because the wood hardly warps.
Teak garden furniture therefore does not need to be varnished or necessarily covered. Even without any care, they stay beautiful for a very long time. The teak U Bein Bridge in Mandalay has withstood more than 170 years of wind and rain! and is still in use today.
Teak has at least 50 years from growth to maturity. The longer the tree age, the oilier the teak, the clearer the mineral lines, the stronger the scent, the better the stability and toughness of the wood, the better the resistance to insects, ants, acids and alkalis. Strong and extremely corrosion resistant.
Teak about 50 years old has a golden yellow or brown color, with clear mineral lines, careful texture, good oiliness and strong fragrance. Old teak generally grows for more than a hundred years, and its oiliness, fragrance and texture are even better. Darker color, mostly dark brown and tan. Due to the long growth cycle and careful texture, the specific gravity is about 1.3 times than normal. Among them, the heaviest is taken from the root of the tree because it has the longest growing season and absorbs the most nutrients.
Each of our products is uniquely designed and handcrafted. Each product uses a unique grinding and secret protective varnish formulation technology to keep the products looking radiant forever. This is our unique craftsmanship.
We use carefully selected high-quality materials for all our products. We use 10mm thick glass. We only buy high quality teak from the Indonesian government, the thickness of the trunk part of the teak used in our products is 50mm and the thickness of the root is 90 to 100mm, which is very rare in the market. Normally, teak furniture uses only 2 cm thick wood in the trunk part. Due to the particularly dry climate and the large temperature differences in Europe, we only use specially dried wood. This wood is very expensive, but it is a guarantee of quality. We refuse anything made from fresh wood and shipped to you directly from Indonesia.
